Tenba PM17C Messenger bag 638-231

Laptop bags for 17 inch monsters of a decent quality and decent design tend to be far and few between. Even amidst the rare few manufacturers that are willing to provide for such uncommon 'want to port' laptop dimensions, they're usually a little hit and miss in terms of actual fit. Then you also have the extremes of visually pleasing design at a premium, cheese grater like visual appearance but extreme quality in terms of strength/dura...

YONGNUO RF-603C wireless radio flash trigger

The RF-603C usually comes as a pair. The reason being that one is usually mounted on the hot-shoe mount of your Canon DSLR and acts as the master radio wireless flash trigger, and the other will act as the receiver whilst usually having a flashgun mounted on it that doesn't have radio wireless flash capabilities, which basically completes your simple off camera radio wireless flashgun trigger setup. You can also buy additional RF-603C u...

Rambling opinion on what I reckon of the Sony a7R and a7 sometime way after release, (... without any actual hands on)

So it looks like that if I ever finally get round to going full frame on a digital camera, the Sony a7R or a7 would more or less fulfil my requirements with the way things currently stand, and it's definitely something I would seriously consider as an option.

If I ever did get the cash I would have maybe opted for the Sony a99, however the idea was sort of dead in the water in my particular case as it would have requ...

The mirror viewfinder vs electronic viewfinder/LCD screen (...trade offs)

I was looking forward to using a regular mirror viewfinder again having been stuck with using crappy low resolution LCD screens on various point and shoots for some time, and I guess in situations where the LCD screen or an electronic viewfinder could potentially get broken or fail to then impede on your ability to actually seriously take pictures, a regular mirror viewfinder will ensure you've still got something to preview and frame y...

Sony VCL-ECU1 ultra-wide converter x0.75 for the 16mm f2.8 e-mount pancake lens (not to be confused with the VCL-ECF1 which is the fish-eye version)

It doesn't cause any degradation of image quality. So if there are any flaws they're from the original pancake lens itself. It pretty much does exactly what it says, its converts the pancake lens into an ultra-wide angle lens at what should be 10mm without going all fisheye effect. Sure, a decent DSLR ultra-wide angle lens might give you better image quality, but getting something like that for a DSLR at arounf f2.8 would weigh in at ab...

Sony e-mount 16mm f.2.8 pancake lens

words and image source/photographer : Eksovichea Tito Hak


I won't try to justify what this lens can or can't do against all the other reviews that have gone before about it. It's not a new lens so you'll find plenty of reviews that pretty much all say the same thing. But to put it simply, if you know the lenses claimed limitations and how to work around/with some of them via the buttons you have on your camera for different settings, then I reckon you'll be quite pleased with the potential res...
